NagiosGrapher: HTTP Response Time

Apr 13, 2010, 23:32 (0 Talkback[s])

"Graph Set Up in NagiosGrapher

"The directory /etc/nagios/ngraph.d contains the graph files that will build your graphs. By default this directory contains subdirectories, templates and in side templates; standard and extra. The first thing you should do is review the template files in /etc/nagios/ngrpah.d/templates/standard. This assumes you have NagiosGrapher already set up. You will see many of the templates end in ."disabled" which you will then need to move them so they end in a .ncfg", for example:

mv check_mysql.ncfg_disabled check_mysql.ncfg

"Check that nagios owns the templates so they can be read.

chown -R nagios:nagios /etc/nagios/ngraph.d

"Live Nagios Training is available as well as Linux consulting if you need additional help.

"When you start setting up graphs you will find that whether you have used basic checks, nrpe, snmp, ssh or passive checks, you will find some incompatibilities with NagiosGrapher due to the regular expressions (perl) used in the program. The service_name creates a regular expression which is used by NagiosGrapher to determine the service."
